An actually local FLGS has opened in my home town. Being a pretty small town, the main things going on seem to be Magic and 40K. Not having a 40K army I had a look around and decided I liked the Horus Heresy marines.
Problem is, Marines are a bit of a blank canvas and I don't have an artists eye for color so I tossed some different paints on a couple figs. The one I liked the best was based on Marine Teal.
I think the basic color scheme is sound but I have some questions about some of the accessories.
I'm not sure what to do with the bolter. I think more teal and brass would be too much but other things I've tried didn't quite work. The blue on it now isn't bad but I think it could be better.
I did the lava base mostly because I wanted an excuse to use the Basius pads I got from their Kickstarter. From what I remember from the Jen & Ann's DVD section on color theory the warm colors might bring too much focus from the mini itself? Any thoughts on that?
I've got a bunch of these GW Chaos Space Marines taking up space, so I figured I'll paint one or 2 of them every once in a while. Kharne the Betrayer is a pretty interesting guy, so I'm going to work on him first.
Early steps so far; I'm just working on his armor right now. Ignore the color on his arm; that's going to be going away soon.
BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!!!!!!
Stonehaven's mounted characters are great. The small mounts are all a common size, so you can put any character on any mount.
But they're also the right size for another kind of mount...
edit: and looking at these pictures now, I see a few mistakes that I need to go fix. Sigh.
Finally had my bases dry and got some pics of my Tankbustas and Ork Mek - the Tankbustas are conversions (basically I add a lot of rockets on them, and then more rockets)
The Mek is the one in the front with the wrench and gear on a pole, and a big ol wrench in his right

Used the Golden Skin triad with nice results (to me!)
Still working on the edge blending, but I'm happy with them for gaming level!
